Online multiplayer gaming, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has announced a new map aimed at those with limited time on their hand and want to squeeze in a quick session.
“We want more people to enjoy PUBG Mobile in a more flexible way,” producer Rick Li said about the new update.
“The initiative for this map is bringing more flexibility to those players who have tighter schedules and circumstances to accommodate for, he added.
The new map called ‘Livik’, is small and compact, measuring at two kilometers and only support a maximum of 40 players at a time.
The idea behind Livik is to create a space where matches could be played quickly. According to the game developers, matches on the new map last around 15 minutes each.
“The waterfalls around the map will provide unique interactions with the player not available on other maps, the characteristic of the waterfall is the real physical impact of the water flow. Players might even get washed away by rapid water flow when standing on the top of the waterfall. You can also prep with new surprise tactics, such as launching a motorboat off the top of a waterfall to the water below on an unsuspecting team,” said Rick Li.
He also briefed, “That is something we’re really excited to see and we believe we can bring the most realistic battlefield experience to our players by constantly innovating while also keeping true to our core battle royale gameplay.”
The new map Livik is expected to launch soon, however, no final date by the developers has been announced.
